Como classificamos os dispositivos:

Um dispositivo com uma pontuação perfeita será relativamente barato de reparar porque é fácil de desmontar e tem um manual de serviço disponível. Pontos são atribuídos com base na dificuldade de abrir o dispositivo, os tipos de fixadores encontrados dentro e a complexidade envolvida na substituição dos componentes principais. Damos pontos por possibilidade de fazer upgrade, uso de ferramentas de manutenção não-patenteadas e modularidade dos componentes.
